No, no, this isn’t becoming a “mommy blog.” God forbid.
Just a couple things I found interesting.
Yesterday Vincenzo had a pediatrician visit and the doctor explained to me the whole plan for introducing him to solid foods. Today was his first non-milk “meal.” It consisted of:
-vegetable broth prepared with one carrot and one zucchini
-a few spoonfuls of powdered rice cereal
– one teaspoon of olive oil
Do you not love it? My baby’s first meal had olive oil in it. Something tells me that’s not on the menu for US babies, but I could be wrong… Racheal Ray would totally approve, right? EVOO, people!! Yum-o! (Insert eye roll here). Check out her website and you’ll even find she’s dispensing parenting tips, real gems like this one: Spend one on one time with your kid–Even if you’ve got three or four of them, making some one on one time for each child will give you bonding time that you can’t get as a group.
WOW. It’s like… WOW.
But, this is what I find the funniest though. When my mom was here for Vince’s baptism about a month ago, we went to the supermarket and were looking at stuff in the baby aisle. She picks up a package of baby food and goes, “Well, that’s weird. Why in the world would they put a horse on the package?”
Go ahead, answer me that. Why would they put a horse on the package?
I personally have never gone in for the whole “horse meat” thing here in Italy, so I highly doubt little V is going to be partaking in it. I’m sure it tastes just like chicken though.
